Wood Library-Museum of Anesthesiology


Without anesthesia, all surgery is impossible.

That is the core theme of the Wood Library-Museum, which honors the centuries-long history of anesthesiology and its vital role in modern medicine today.

The beautiful open architecture of the museum provides a perfect canvas for exploring that history, with a transformative 55-foot timeline wall and artifact-rich exhibits that tell the story of the countless innovators who helped define the profession.

“We made a great decision in Solid Light. They have given us great advice and expertise in how we can best tell our story.”
